Update: I have arrived at #MNC2013! Ron-mentum to get underway at 9:15 or so!
There is also a rather large police presence, presumably due to today's Very Special Guest. #MNC2013
I've now snuck into the opening session, which is just about to wrap up to make way for Ron Paul. #MNC2013
It's literally standing room only, by the way, and even the wall is running out of space. #MNC2013
(That's the actual, non-metaphorical wall, not the Free Speech Wall, just to be clear.) #MNC2013
Confession: I sort of want a #MNC2013 swag bag.
Ahh, Preston Manning, who seems to become more partisan-transcendent and serene with every passing year. #MNC2013
(Manning will provide hosting/question-asking services for the Ron Paul session.) #MNC2013
We've now been instructed to introduce ourselves to 'at least two people' we don't know as the stage is set for the Paulification. #MNC2013
(If anyone wants to make me one of their two new friends, I'm sitting on the riser.) #MNC2013
There is boisterous music playing! #MNC2013
